STANFORD, Calif. – Incoming Stanford women’s gymnast Elizabeth Price won the International Gymnastics Federation’s all-around World Cup Series.
Price claimed victories at the AT&T American Cup in Greensboro, N.C., and the Stuttgart (Germany) World Cup. She took second at the Glasgow (Scotland) World Cup.
At the AT&T American Cup, Price finished first with an all-around score of 59.966. She posted a meet-best 15.700 on vault, and went 15.2 on bars, 14.566 on beam and 14.500 on floor.
Price defended her 2012 title at the Stuttgart World Cup by posting a meet-best 58.032 in the all-around. She scored a competition-best 15.700 on vault, and had strong performances on uneven bars (14.466), floor (14.366) and balance beam (13.500).
Price signed a National Letter of Intent in mid-November to join the Cardinal in 2014-15. She boasts a wealth of national and international experience and was named an alternate to the U.S. Olympic team that won the gold medal in the 2012 London Olympics. It was the first gold-medal finish for the U.S. since 1996.
Price finished fourth at the 2012 Olympic Trials after hitting each of her eight routines.
Price will join a Stanford team that recently qualified for its seventh NCAA Championships in the past eight years, and 14th time in program history, by finishing second at the NCAA Baton Rouge Regional.
The Cardinal has made 31 consecutive NCAA Regional appearances (34 overall) and accumulated 96 All-America honors (including 75 since 2002). Stanford is one of seven teams in the nation to make six Super Six appearances in the past 12 years (2002-13).
